Product Description

Product Description

Ava was a very special Roo
who could do all the things that Roos can do.
She could jump really high, up in the air
and land on her feet, just about anywhere.
And as you know, Roos don’t run... they hop,
Really, really fast until they stop.
Why Ava can hop, faster than EVEN YOU can run!
You should try it sometime, it’s so much fun!
But wait! There’s another thing Ava can do!
Something special you won’t see from just any Roo!
Lean in close, perk up your ear.
Get ready for a surprise at will you will hear... (cont'd)

Matt Ballard, Ava the Talking Kangaroo (No publisher listed, 2011)

points off: no publisher listed.

I'm not sure I know quite where to begin with this one, aside from knocking off a star for the lack of information noted above. I'm certainly no stranger to budget Kindle ebooks, so when I saw the cover, and we'll be tactful and call the drawing modern primitivist, I was perfectly okay with that and more than willing to give the book a chance. And, well, I know you've got to wade through a whole lot of budget-ebook swine to find the pearls like ABC Party Animals (Early Learning Fun), so it's not like I begrudge the three minutes I spent reading this one or the buck it set me back. And really, most of it's not that bad, but every once in a while you get a real howler...

"It might be long, you may be a while,
so sit and listen with a smile.
And if you're lucky, it might only be, [sic]
an hour or two before you're FREE!"

Ay, caramba... I've certainly read worse over the past couple of years, but that can still see the bottom of the barrel through the murk. If you pick a copy of this up, read through it yourself before busting it out for the kiddies. *
HASH(0x99b23324) out of 5 stars Some pages are VERY HARD to READ May 22 2012

This is not the first book I have come across that is difficult to read. Unfortunately on a E ink display Kindle this book is difficult, actually nearly impossible to read on some of the pages. I am sure this book is great on the Kindle Fire or other device that are in color. Unfortunately, it doesn't work well the an E Ink display Kindle. The pages I can read have cute illustrations and ryming text that is cute as well. Maybe the author will see this and edit their book so the text appears clearly on all Kindles. One author I have found has their book in both color and black and white and my children love the book.
